Recoiiendatlons Made for Further
lea utlilatlti of the Cemetery.
The regular semi-annual meeting of
the Trustees of the Laurens Cemetery
Association convened in the presi
dent's0 room of the 10nterprise National
Bank, on May 3rd, with Adm.'al Me
Gowan in the chair. Those present in
person nwere 3Miss Mary Ferguson, Ad
miral McGowan, A. C. Todd, R. F.
-Jones, L. G. Balle and Admiral Me
Gowan held the proxy of N. 13. iial.
The iirst business to come before
the meetiag was the Introduction of
the three following resolutions which
were unanimously adopted:
."Resolved that the Trustees expr ess
to the ladies of the Executive Commit
tee their -grateful aTpreciation of tle
committee's most valuable work inl
getting the cemetery in its prese'nt
gratifying ionditiol and rQquest the
nnie be continued."
"liesolved that the thank of tle
Trustees )e extended to Mayor John
A. Franks and the City Couincil, and
Mr. Carl isle 13o1t, Supeiniteldent of
the streets, for thir vailued lielp in
the eineterv and ean iestly requnest
the continuance thereof."
"Resolved that the Tristees express
to Mr. ). E. Todd their grateful ap
preeiation of his Voluntary and valu
able assistance to the Executive (pi
mittee in putting the cemetery in its
present gratifying condition and earn
estly request that lie continue his ac
tive and most helpful interest."
A motion was carried empowering
the Executive Committee to employ
Tom Owens as an assistant to Lonle
Moore at a wage scale of not more
than $2.00 per working day.
The Trustees, realizing the cost of
lots, a's heretofore determined (by run
ning or linear feet), oftentimes 'proved
unsatisfactory and unjust because of
lie fact that the lots varied in depth,
unanimously adopted a resolution that
"iHereafter no lot be transferred or
sold at a less price than ten cents
(10c) per square foot."
A motion was made and carried that
the cEy be earnestly requested to in
stall two or more additional wtter
spigots on the grounds of the cemetery.
The Trustees, striving for continued
improvement in the alppearalce and
beauty of the cemetery but without
any thought of being arbitrary in Its
action or discourteous to anyone,
adopted a inotion, that the Executive
Committee be requested to remove all
awnings, after obtaining consent of
the owners and thereafter no further
such installations be permitted.
Acting upon the request of Mrs. M.
L. Copeland that she be relieved of the
duties of the Acting Secretary and
Treasurer Mrs. II. K. Aiken was elect
ed her successor.

* Mrs. Cleo Cuunnginua Wofford *
Cleo Cunningham Wofford was born
June 14, 1873. We knew her as "Aunt
Kate" and still love and remember her
under that name. For many years the
readers of the Laurens Advertiser read
swith itiltisual interest the articles
wvritten by "Aunt Kate.'" Not until af
ter her death did it become iluniversally
knowin that the author of these much
appreciated articles was .rs. C.' C.
Wofford, whom God called to her re
ward on 'May 8, 1920.
"Aunt Kate" set for us a worthy ex
ample of faithfulness in her untirlig
effort for the Woman's Missionary Un
ion. She served as president of the
Unii on in the first div!sion for several
years, but. becaluse of scarcity of lead
ers inl the lird divisioni, sle was
tranasferr1ed to the third division. F'or
three years she served faithfully in ithe
ca pactty of president of this divisionl.
It is lardly enough to say that she was
faithful in the dischlare of her du10ies.
1f h ih1, le we should like to expre.::
le. l.alty in stionger terms. I!r d(
mostic d(uies wvere iecesSarily very
taxilig, a.; '1he was the mctler (f t
ehildren sill of whom; are still lir in:i.
Yet in the face of all the deiianl(A of
tle home life, she never failed to 1b
1preselt. at every meetinag ald ready to
fill lier place on the lograini. 'o le
praise pf "Aunat Kate" it cn he said,
too, that her loyalty to her Christian
(uties never caused her to neglect her
home duties. She was one of the few
women who had the happy faculty for
home building, but not at the sacrifIce
of all interest in society at large; and
also the talent to make a definite con
tribution to the Kingdlom of God
through her pen and church activities,
but never at the sacriflee of the home
dities which evidently were first In
her life and thoughts. As we remem
ber her today it seems that she truly
worked to make the world a worthy
field for her own children; and, at the
same time, labored to make hieri own
children worthy to* become laborers
in that field.
.ler Interest in education was un
usual. To her education meant pi'o
gress and therefore was an object
worthy of her best support. Her am
bition to equil) her own children for
ellcient service made it a joy to her to
make the necessary sacrifices to give
them the best educational advantages
possible. It was her privilege to see
four of her ten children college grad
uates. it her interests were not lim
ited to those of her own householo.
She never failed to encourage the oth
e' young people of he' (olllmuillty to
cr 3'Oun ig lieple f her community to
take advantage of all the training to
which they had acces.'4 If possible she
would aid them in securinig scholar
ships .where scholarships were nmeede(l
anld de0served.
Not only w.as she an advocate of
Christian plrogress, educational pro
gress, but also civie iiterests. When
the good roads were beiii agitated,
"Aunt Kate" was ready with her pen
anl ilt]uience to encourage the miove
ment. No habitual teamnscei was imor ie
delighted than she was when such
r'oads1 wvere biiit as to make it possiblIe
to miss ''doiibie .br'anch hiill'' and to
make it piossibtle for thle a utoiioil Ies
to defy all bad wveathier.
Words fail us whien we attempt to
('iulogiz.e a Womiana of suchi cuiiture,'C
such1 unswerving Chrmistian faith, such'l
unitirig anmbit ion and such a world
wide v'islion of seivice. We can feel
and~ know that God did place a truly
great wvoman In our miidst, a wvoman;
who has mlade such defini1 te conttribuj
tionis to the lives of other's as to make
us feel very keenly the loss that we
sustain in heri death. Probably time
insciptloln upon heri tomb is the most
adequate expression of hier genuine
chairacter': (Prov. 31:31), "Give her of
the frnit of heri hands; and~ let heri
own wvorks praise her in thme gates."
